Rumeli Fortress, Istanbul


Rumeli Fortress, Istanbul, originally uploaded by - di.

This photograph was less about the details of the 556 year old fortress and more about barely discernible couple at the top of the stairway in the background.

It occurred to me that ancient, almost deserted fortresses situated on the edge of the famous Bosphorous are surely the best place to spend time talking to someone you love.

Party tonight.
Much cleaning and cooking and some wine buying has created the shape of this day. It has been a good day.

Dear Peter, thank you so much for coming over. I'm glad you enjoyed everyone and did you realise there were 10 Belgians. Not bad ;)
